    R. Scott Moxley at the Weekly pulls back the curtain a little further:

    “Sheriff’s deputies doctored and shred records after the announced launch of a U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) probe eight years ago into suspected police corruption, according to the latest courthouse bombshell filed March 30 in what is known nationally as the Orange County Jailhouse Informant Scandal.”

      Thanks for the link to Moxley’s article….WOW!!

      It is unbelievable to see the scandal laid out so clearly. Great cartoon too!

      I must say that I witnessed all those same tricks used in this scandal -inside the bureaucracy as well.

      How all evidence of reality — just disappears.

      They have the hide and seek game down pat.

        Moxley has always written great articles. He’s a real investigative reporter. No fake news. That’s probably the reason he doesn’t work for one of the big print media publishers. They want stenographers. Not real reporters. He was light years ahead of all the rest of them on Carona.

        It’s really a shame that the government agencies that are supposed to have the most integrity have the least in 2017. I’d be ashamed to work for OCSD.

  • LFOldTimer

    OCSD will have to create a bunch of new makeshift jobs to accommodate all the $six-figure$ Brady cops who are or will be unable to testify under oath in a court of law (a basic function in any LE job description) as a result of InformantGate. Seriously, what good is a tainted cop whose testimony in a criminal case is as useless as gonads on a heifer and would result in automatic acquittal? A criminal defense attorney fresh out of a one-star law school would look like Perry Mason during cross-examination. Scott Sanders must have the grin of a Chesshire cat that just swallowed the canary every time he walks into the courthouse. Hutchens probably has a dartboard with his picture on it in her office. lol. Just when I’ve thought I’ve seen the worst Sander’s drops yet another bombshell.

    Nothing short of a total sweep up the chain at Sheriff, DA, CEO and County Council who ALL conspired to destroy (Subpeoned) evidence under the direction of this BoS could restore some semblance of a Justice System in OC.

    We want to see the heads start to roll. Who will be sacrificed first?

    • LFOldTimer

      “Who will be sacrificed first?”

      My guess is the usual: Lady Justice.

    NEW: Supervise the snitch scandal….get promoted http://www.ocregister.com/articles/network-748210-county-supervised.html who said sheriff’s crime doesn’t pay!

  • verifiedsane

    “Sanders: Sheriff’s Department Tried to Cover Its Tracks in Jailhouse Snitch Scandal” – they didn’t just cover their tracks – they broke the law multiple times….the fact that not a single person from the sheriffs department, DA’s office, and the BoS has been held fully accountable in this criminal debacle is the STORY.

  • LFOldTimer

    And still no comment from the BoS who were elected to protect the reputation and integrity of county government. The five wise monkeys. See no evil, hear no evil, say no evil. The entire barrel of apples has rotted.

    What kills me is how cavalier all these cops were while breaking the laws. And the breadth of the conspiracy. All felt teflonized. The green wall of silence must go high and far.

    If they went to this length on a smoking-gun open and shut case (Dekraii) what do they do on the wobblers? lol.

    The iceberg theory comes to mind. What you see only represents about 1/10th of the scandal. 9/10th remains hidden beneath the surface. What went on below the surface is what sends shivers up my spine.

    It’s not only the bad cop who’s dirty. The “good” cop who knows what the bad cop is doing and remains silent is just as dirty.

    They tell us that we need to pay them like medical doctors because we need the best and the brightest.

    • verifiedsane

      It’s the code….Sheriff’s never…..(it’s worth repeating) never eat their own…If someone were to step to the plate & squeal or blow the whistle….it would be career ending or much worse…that’s how criminal corruption manifest into the ingrained institutionalized corruption that we have in OC today…

  • David Zenger

    “None of the deputies have been disciplined for lying and all three have refused to testify in subsequent criminal cases, invoking their Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination.”

    Of course not. All sorts of nasty skeletons would have tumbled out of that closet – including how high up the chain of command this went.

    Of course the program has Brad Gates written all over it. And he’s been gone for 20 years.

    • verifiedsane

      It’s obvious this went all the way to the top and beyond….look how even former State Attorney General and now senator Kamala D. Harris rallied behind the DA’s office wrong doing. This is public corruption at it’s worst, and a disturbing symptom of a much larger and systemic problem throughout government.

        Sometimes I wonder how this great country survives. We really need the justice system to step up, they are supposed to be the paragons of virtue. I have a few relatives in the bus. and they seem to do a good job. Then there was my cousin the cop from New York that told me stories about beating confessions out of suspects.
